LINDBERGH GETS THE JOB AGAIN: Peter Lindbergh will be shooting the Pirelli calendar, the annual limited-edition calendar released by the Italian tire company, this year. The calendar, which launched in 1964, has been known to spotlight the world’s top models, often in the nude, and has become a collector’s item. It comes out in late November. Lindbergh shot the calendar in 1996 and 2002.
The 2002 calendar featured actresses instead of models for the first time and was shot on the back lot of Universal Studios. Lindbergh and Patrick Demarchelier shot a special spread kicking off the 50th anniversary edition of the Pirelli calendar in 2014.
Last year’s Pirelli calendar was photographed by Annie Leibovitz and rather than feature models, it highlighted celebrities such as Serena Williams, Amy Schumer, Yoko Ono, Fran Lebowitz, Tavi Gevinson and Natalia Vodianova.
